Boris Johnson, in the latest Omicron news, urges un-vaxed Britons to get a Covid booster and promises that lateral flow tests will remain free.

Boris Johnson emphasized the importance of “joining the movement” and getting vaccinated for those who have so far refused a booster shot.

The Prime Minister said today that he would “act according to science” when it came to reducing the self-isolation period for Covid-19 cases.

Experts are examining whether the time limit for cases could be reduced from seven to five days, which would help alleviate staffing shortages across the economy and public services.

As ministers consider how to transition to a position of living with Covid-19, Mr Johnson also promised that free lateral flow tests would be available for “as long as it is necessary.”

In the face of the Omicron wave, he said testing, along with vaccinations, was an important line of defense.

“Getting vaccinated is, of course, the other line of defense in addition to testing.

The boosters are performing admirably.

We’ve done 36 million boosters so far, covering 90% of people over 50, but there’s still time for people who haven’t been boosted.”
